The DP World Tour and Sky Sports have announced an extension to their broadcast partnership in the United Kingdom and Ireland, with Sky Sports remaining the home of the DP World Tour until 2024 and the Ryder Cup until 2025.
The deal will see all DP World Tour events broadcast live exclusively across Sky's platforms, including both its linear and on-demand services. That means Sky Sports customers will be able to enjoy a minimum of 32 live events each season across the Tour's global tournament schedule.
Fans will also be able to enjoy new featured group coverage for the Tour's flagship Rolex Series events, and the Tour will also be working closely with Sky's VIP loyalty programme to offer access to a selection of UK and ROI tournaments.
Sky Sports customers will also enjoy a range of golf programming across both linear and digital platforms, including masterclass sessions with former DP World Tour winners, behind-the-scenes access ahead of the world's biggest events, documentaries and much more.
The deal will also see Sky Sports broadcast to its UK and Ireland customers both the 2023 Ryder Cup in Rome and the 2025 contest in New York, live on a dedicated Sky Sports Ryder Cup channel.
Sky Sports: The home of golf
This agreement extends an already successful partnership between the Tour and Sky Sports that stretches back almost 30 years. Sky Sports' award-winning golf analysis is provided by some of the biggest names in golf, including former Ryder Cup captain Paul McGinley, Butch Harmon, Laura Davies and Nick Dougherty.
Speaking about the extended partnership, Managing Director of Sky Sports, Jonathan Licht said; "As we kickstart a record-breaking year of golf on Sky, we are thrilled to be extending our long-term partnership with the DP World Tour, further cementing Sky Sports as the home of golf in the UK and Ireland.
